EAN Aviation restores FBO radio frequency

EAN Aviation, the Lagos-based business aviation services company has confirmed it has reactivated its FBO radio frequency.

The base radio, which is located at EAN’s FBO in Lagos was badly damaged in a torrential rainstorm last winter and since then EAN have been working tirelessly to restore connectivity.

EAN’s dedicated channel frequency 129.475 MHz was re-booted on 29th August 2016 and following subsequent checks EAN Aviation clients are being advised of its fully functional status.

The restored system enables EAN to maintain continuous contact with aircraft up to 100 nautical miles from Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS/DNMM), and supports flight tracking as well as voice transmissions.

The radio is manned 24 hours a day by EAN’s licensed dispatchers who provide aircraft departing from, and arriving into, the EAN Aviation FBO with current, local information about the flying environment. Special requests can also be made for ground handling, fuel supply, specific equipment needs, maintenance and other services directly to the dispatchers.

EAN can also convey instructions on runway allocation, which is particularly important for international business aviation flights that need to land on the nominated Runway 18R for appropriate customs clearance.

“For clients making their first flight into Lagos it’s a real bonus to be able to communicate directly with our team. It gives them peace of mind knowing that there is someone on the ground monitoring their flight and able to answer their queries immediately. It also means that we can action any specific last-minute requests and be fully prepared for the aircraft’s touch down,” said Segun Demuren, CEO of EAN Aviation.

“The restoration of the EAN Aviation frequency showcases our ongoing commitment to maintaining international service levels. It’s a very valuable system in terms of safety and security and we’re delighted it’s fully operable once again.”

"In addition to the Authority oversight roles, NCAA has placed the onerous responsibility of the first line of safety on the operating airlines’ Pilot In Command of each flight and the assigned Engineer that authorized each flight. With all the various checks and counter checks put in place by NCAA combined with that of the operators, it is therefore improbable that any airline in Nigeria will operate a service with that kind of tyre.
